The FINANCIAL — After a strong run across the first six months of 2016, Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of Porsche 911, Boxster, and Cayman sports cars, Macan and Cayenne SUVs, and the Panamera four-door sports sedan line-up in the United States, announced July 2016 sales of 3,878 vehicles today.
This represents an 18 percent decrease in vehicle deliveries compared to July 2015. Year-to-date, sales stand at 30,586 which equates to a year-over-year increase of 2.4 percent.
Sports car demand was strong across the board with Boxster and Cayman model lines each yielding a 36 percent sales increase over last year, with 732 combined sales. The 911 model range delivered 806 vehicles, representing a 3.6 percent gain compared to July 2015, according to Volkswagen.
Collectively, supply changeover from model year 2016 to model year 2017 for SUVs has slowed the ability to meet customer demand – the Macan registered 931 deliveries, representing a 39 percent decrease compared to last year, and Cayenne sales waned by 27.5 percent with 1,067 vehicles delivered.
Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned vehicle sales in the U.S. were 1,426 for July 2016, which is an increase of 13.7 percent compared to the same period last year. Year-to-date CPO sales are 9,792 vehicles, which is an increase of 21.9 percent over 2015.
